    Paul Allen Hypocryte?

    http://seattletimes.com/html/busines...onlawsuit.html


    Paul Allen has filed a lawsuit in the San Francisco Bay Area over a World War II-era German tank it says it paid $2.5 million for but never received

    So he can have arms but will spend millions to prevent you from having them

    Making a comparison between Paul Allens stand on civilian owned firearms and a WWII tank that is undoubtedly incapable of shooting is illogical. The connection is a nonsequitur and leave one scratching one's head wondering WTF?

    The tank most certainly is a DEWAT and not a weapon of any sort. Unless he drives it recklessly.

    Not exactly, if it is considered a museum piece it may still be fully functional, there are quite a few in the hands of private collectors that are 100% functional, however you have to be extremely wealthy , considering who were talking about its not far from reality.

    Another craislist ad sucker (I did not read the link) I assume.

    A fool and his money are soon parted. hahaha

    But I did call him up and offered a replacement if he would just pay for the 50K shipping charges...I'm waiting for his check to clear.

    First consider there are about 1400 class 03 Federal Firearms Liscenses (Collector Liscense) issued to private citizens in the state of Washington. Under the regulation created by 594 each one would be required to get a background check for each purchase regardless the codition of the firearm. This is indeed hypocrytical and a fair comparison.

    Code:

    Perhaps he should try the internet.  I hear armslist and gunbroker have no waiting, & no questions asked.

    The problem with America is stupidity.
    I'm not saying there should be capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?
